By not enforcing the constitution, the cops are breaking the law - I guess to you this means "no matter what a leo does it will never be right" -
spot on! It WILL NEVER be right to take away my rights!
I would never step on anyones rights and I would never step on our sacred constitution. I have my own copy of the constitution and I took an oath to
Reading your post made me feel that you were just a cop basher and that leo's, as a whole, are power hungry dictators that get off on abusing the
privileges that have been granted them. If that was not the case then I apologize to you in public.
I believe that leo's should be held to a higher standard because of the enormous powers that have been granted them, by law, and if it is found that
any leo has broken his solemn oath then he should be held accountable and should be charged and sentenced with the highest penalty allowed by law.
An example would be the Delta Blues sting that happened in my neck of the woods. Several officers that I personally considered as friends were
involved in aiding and abetting drug smugglers through the Helena-West Helena, Arkansas area. I had no idea that they were doing this and it both
hurt and inflamed me that they, as leo's, could break the same laws that I and other leo's have been arresting criminals for years. Any leo that
breaks the law is a criminal themselves.
As for Maricopa County, it is difficult, if not impossible, to contain the influx of illegal aliens into our country and I feel that no matter what
those officers do it will never be deemed right in the eyes of those that want to open our borders to illegals and give them free assistance from our,
mine and yours, hard earned income.
Once again, if I misread you, I apologize.
From a member of Oath Keepers, peace
